Black Lamb


Now in its 14th year of publication, this magazine was created to offer the discerning reader a stimulating selection of excellent original writing. Black Lamb Review is a literate rather than a literary publication. Regular columns by writers in a variety of geographic locations and vocations are supplemented by features, reviews, articles on books and authors, and a selection of “departments,” including an acerbic advice column and a lamb recipe.


Black Lamb welcomes submissions from new writers. Email us.

Elizabeth Fournier examines the Vatican’s efforts to go green in Pope mobile. In Whatever happened to global warming? Toby Tompkins offers himself as a candidate for president of the United States. In Author intervention, author invention, Lane Browning insists that her admiration for David Long’s writing will not change even though the author is a jerk. Jessica Ferri reviews Alan Hollinghurst’s novel The Stranger’s Child in Brief, lusty life of a poet.

Our Honorary Black Lambs column welcomes two more writers to our pantheon with pocket biographies and bibliographies of poet James Merrill and novelist Philip Roth. Our Wretched Excess column calls attention to the myriad varieties of medications for erectile dysfunction and the ubiquity of the mugs of Bono and Ali.
